Youth Forum Blog - Kaya
Our first 2020 Youth Forum blog from one of our young people, Kaya.
Hi my name is Kaya.
I was recently accepted to study a degree in Psychology with Counselling at university.
In the last few weeks I have been working towards completing both the application for university as well as the application for Student Finance England (SFE). Both of these applications were quite difficult to complete with my eyesight, as everything is all over the screen, so if you are like me and you have to zoom in whilst using the computer, it makes it a lot more difficult!
But I am relieved that I managed to complete both applications. I found calling SFE very helpful as they told me which sections in the application to complete.
During the last few days I have been getting the last few things ready for when I start.
I am glad that my course is working from home so I do not need to worry about being around a lot of people in this pandemic.
This lockdown has given me time to plan out which career path I want to go down as well as deciding to go to university.
I now feel motivated and ready to start university after a long break!
